At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are preparing to resume research early in 2015 following a major program of maintenance and upgrading to prepare the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to run at almost double the energy. This will enable researchers to open a new chapter in probing the underpinning structure of the universe in search of the basic constituents of matter and to gain insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Software AG has revealed how its in-memory data management software BigMemory, has helped provide maximum support system availability since the launch of Control and Monitoring Platform (C2MON). C2MON provides real-time information concerning the multiple support systems that maintain an optimal operating environment for the LHC…
